This is for Tradydave. There are 2 ways to make Tom's EA work profitably. Use MT4i's Personal Trade Copier to block orders smaller than 6X (or whatever you like). If you go for real $$, just make sure your Broker's Demo server and Real server are 'close' network-wise. I can confirm Alpari and IamFX are for sure - (else, the delay may miss new orders or fail to close open orders) You have to monitor the cut off value (ie., lots size) because it changes with Equity value and you might inadvertently let a 3X or worse, a 1X order pass through. Post it to MyFXBook and adjust the Multiplier value to get around 10% a month. Remember. this will Triple your money in 1 year. Patience always wins! I have blown too much $$ in the last 24 months by being greedy. Always have a big cushion of equity!
The second way is an EA I paid to get developed. I am still testing, but it 'virtualizes' the 1X or 3X or whateverX sized orders and only actually trades the higherX orders - without a trade copier! I posted it for viewing by all here: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/ForexCuredotcom/tea-free/712695
. That one trades 3X and larger orders. An external variable lets you adjust the Risk just like TEA, but has a new variable called 'multiplier' to set the cutoff (setting '1' eliminates all 1X, setting '3' eliminates all 3X and 1X, setting '6' only lets 9X and larger through). If you want a copy, just help me recover a little of the developement costs, say $15. Fair? There is no authentication required of course. Maybe we can start a new thread and share our forward tests.
